Therapy for Feelings of Insecurity and Low Self-Worth

Feelings of insecurity and low self-worth are extremely common in our society, and can lead to feelings of depression and anxiety. Interestingly, we frequently find that clients who struggle with feelings of low self-worth often have traumatic histories that have contributed to these feelings.


Indicators of low self-worth include:

  • Rejection sensitivity 

  • Frequently feeling like you are fundamentally inadequate or 'not good enough'

  • Struggling to accept positive feedback from others

  • Tendency to feel jealous, judging and critical of others

  • Struggling to be authentic in your relationships

  • Believe that if people really knew the true 'you', they wouldn't like you

How We Can Help

We want to help you address the root causes of your feelings of low self-worth. You weren't born feeling worthless - we want to understand what happened to you to develop these feelings about yourself. Then, we can collaborate in determining what to do about it!


If, during a thorough assessment, your feelings of low self-worth are determined to be linked to past traumatic events, your therapist will use a trauma-focussed therapy, likely Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) if applicable.

If a thorough assessment determines that your anxiety is not likely to have been caused by trauma, your therapist will utilise evidence-based therapies including:

  • Mindfulness

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Compassion-Focussed Therapy (CFT)

  • Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

  • Dialectical-Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
